Here is an HR shocker. If SEIU President Andy Stern were heading HR in a large company rather than the heading the countrys largest union, he would outsource a lot more. His outsourcing providers would be unions.
Take the example of what Stern did with New York City janitors Local32BJ. Their pension administration, health plans and operation of health clinic, severance and outplacement administration, training and retraining, employee legal services, and even grief counseling are all outsourced to the SEIU. In handling these functions, one of Andys clientsthe employersend up with a far more reliable, trained workforce. And Andys other clientsthe employeesend up with a higher standard wage, respectable benefits, and a path to portable employment should their employer not need their services any more.
Who cares why corporations are employing more third-world workers? They could be doing as part of a diabolical scheme to engineer a lizard master race for all I care.
